Mr. Speaker, as the member for Acadie—Bathurst, I have the honour to speak today to acknowledge the participation of Annie Blanchard from Maisonnette, New Brunswick, in TVA's Star Académie , a weekly show that is based on the same concept as Canadian Idol . Ms. Blanchard faces the possibility of elimination next Sunday.
Annie, the Acadian Peninsula and New Brunswick are behind you.
To encourage you and to support you, the public will gather tonight at Carrefour de la Mer in Caraquet for a benefit concert with fireworks and fanfare in your honour.
Your appearance on Star Académie is the pride of the region. Do not give up. Wilfred has already gone through this. Show them the real Annie.
Good luck, Annie. I look forward to seeing you in Maisonnette.
